Get Accepted to Medical School
Being accepted to medical school doesnt come easily. It requires effort, time and careful preparation. To ensure success for our students, Ferris offers a helping hand into medical school. To help students make the best choices for their professional goals, advisors from the Ferris Pre-Medicine advisory committee work closely with students throughout their four years of study. They help with course selection and development of social, personal and professional maturity.
